As you’ll see, I’m still working in the same series. I’m loving the colors and the motifs.
This is the sketch for the current piece.
And here’s the background, more or less complete.
Or so I thought. But, after studying it for awhile, I decided it was too pastel for my liking. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t exciting me.
This is the second background. The largest shape changed from mostly orange to mostly rust, and the background pale peach changed to soft orange. I like this much better, even though the changes are subtle.
Now what? I auditioned the motifs I was considering. Here you see digital versions added to the existing background.
I thought the white squares showed up well, and set to work adding them. (This time, I remembered to stop and fuse the fabrics first.)
